Good Grub

Posted by on May 11, 2009


We worked for a half-day on Saturday as they still needed workers on the course.  And we decided once again to lunch at the Chuck Wagon.  They provide a great buffet everyday for the workers at a price of $2.25 per meal until the season opens. Then it jumps to a whopping $4.50 a meal. Not bad.  After consuming more calories than we needed we headed home to change into some clothes not ladened with mud.  We needed to make the weekly trip for groceries and we wanted to get as many chores accomplished so that our off days, (Sunday and Monday) could be free to play.  I also agreed to pick up some herbal tea for our neighbors, Naoma and Gary.  They’re working for the foundation as well and will be here for the season.  Originally from the state of Washington, they’ve been fulltiming now for six years and we’ve already learned a lot from them in the brief time we’ve become friends.  We stopped at our local post office.  Erin had phoned me earlier to say that she sent her mom a gift but it hadn’t come in yet, perhaps on Monday. However, there was a pleasant surprise.  We had joined Netflix late Thursday night and had already received our first choice.  What quick service. This is something I’d never thought we’d enroll in.  However, we get no regular TV reception within these Badlands.  We do have the satellite but no network stations available.  So, Survivor, The Great Race, and Two and A Half Men are a thing of the past until we’re “outta this holler”. Back at the RV we did some much needed cleaning and sprucing up as the place has been neglected during the week.  Grilling out and a movie topped off “international date night”.

    A restaurant doesn’t have to be fancy or have high prices to have the best food, as you’ve found out on your travels! Lack of advertising, is sometimes the best! Glad you’re soon to be out of the mud, and dryer for the duration!

    After reading this I thought it was very informative. I appreciate you taking the time to put this blog piece together. I once again find myself spending way to much time both reading and commenting. What ever, it was still worth it
